In the pursuit of happiness, we often strive to better ourselves. This might involve adopting a new beauty regime, joining a gym, taking up a hobby, studying for professional qualifications or even nurturing our spiritual side. However, a crucial aspect that people frequently overlook on the path to self-fulfilment, happiness and self-love is learning how to become better with money.
This oversight is surprising, considering that money plays such a significant role in our lives. It influences our decisions, shapes our choices, creates and eliminates opportunities, and contributes to our overall well-being. When you consider the substantial impact money can have on our physical and mental health, self-esteem, and overall happiness, becoming better with money should be a priority for everyone looking for ways to enhance their lives and love themselves more.
Becoming better with money is not just about financial success though. It’s involves learning how to be more in control of your finances, being able to set and reach goals, make informed decisions, develop a positive money mindset, and so much more.
Unfortunately, nobody is born knowing how to budget, the difference between saving and investing, how to plan for retirement or why it’s important to check and review tax allowances. If we are lucky, we may learn things from our parents, our friends, by chance or by making mistakes along the way. However, the stark reality is that many of us don’t. We see our poor relationship with money as an inherent and permanent flaw. We blame ourselves because it is part of “who we are”. The end result being that we go through life with money having more of a negative impact on our happiness than it should, with no amount of new health and beauty regimes ever able to fill that void.
And yet, in the same way we can strive for self-fulfilment, happiness and self-love by studying for a qualification or learning about healthy eating, exercise and mindfulness, we can learn how to become better with money and reduce the impact it can have on our happiness and self-esteem.
